PRO-UNION PROTESTERS FOUND GUILTY IN WIS. — BUT WAIT UNTIL YOU HEAR THEIR DEFENSE

From The Blaze:


PRO-UNION PROTESTERS FOUND GUILTY IN WIS. — BUT WAIT UNTIL YOU HEAR THEIR DEFENSE

The MacIver Institute in Wisconsin has been closely following the pro-union protests that started in that state last year. And it’s done a great job of bringing to light interesting stories (remember the fake doctor notes?). And it hasn’t disappointed with one of its latest videos, which takes you inside the courtroom as protesters try and mount a defense for why they disobeyed police in August and refused to vacate the capitol.
The video below does a good job of laying out the story, so I won’t bore you by repeating details. But what I will say is this: the protesters were eventually found guilty ($200 fine plus court costs), and just wait until you hear their defense.
Wisconsin Protesters Found Guilty
In a nutshell, the protesters claim that when police told the group to vacate the building because it was closing, the cops never told each one individually. They also believe that police would have been able to do their job (close the capitol) even if the protesters were left to sit in the rotunda. The money line comes when one of them claims he would have eventually gotten bored and left.
See it all for yourself:
